shortest but widest cup?

I originally started using a Keeper close to 10 years ago.  It dry-rotted during my pregnancy with my first child, so I got a Large DivaCup when I started having AF again.  The problem now is that I've had three big babies and am really stretched out there (even the OBGYN says as much).  My Large DivaCup will not stay in place.  I have cut off the stem entirely, but about 1/2" of the cup still hangs out.  It's painful when I sit down because it's poking, and if it gets very full at all and I do something like sneeze, cough, or pick up my toddler, the cup comes close to falling out.  It's only my pad/underwear keeping it from completely popping out.

I have no interest in trying tampons again, so for now I'm just using cloth pads (heavy AF, so disposable pads have not provided enough absorbency, even the super pads).  But gigantic cloth pads are a little awkward to use away from home.  I would love to get back to using a menstrual cup with a pantiliner.

Does anybody know which cup might be bigger in diameter--but quite a bit shorter--than the Large (size 2) DivaCup?
